Meet Miss Buttercup

She is modeling a lovely collar handmade by Pipsqueak and Petunia! Buttercup walked the runway {our dock} yesterday showing off her beautiful collar in a fashionable rainbow of colors.  She stopped for a moment for photos from her fans before retiring to her suite for a cool drink and afternoon nap.  With the temperatures rising, the heat seemed to be getting to her but Buttercup never disappoints her fans. {Yes, we are crazy dog people!}

We have two Shar-peis that are spoiled with hugs and treats all day long.  If you’re a dog lover, you can read more about Buttercup and her amazing recovery from an accident on our family blog, Forever Wherever.  You’ll see why she gets spoiled even more now!

Here’s a closer look at one of the beautiful collars from Kelsey.  They fit just right and the quality is excellent…handmade collars are the cat’s meow rock!

Let me introduce you to Kelsey from Pipsqueak and Petunia…

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m Kelsey Golden and I run this fun business called Pipsqueak and Petunia, a line of handmade pet beds and accessories. I live just a couple of blocks from the ocean in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with my husband, our two cats, Truffle and Marzipan, and our dog, Bertie Bott. I have always loved animals and I am passionate about color and design, so starting a business that combined the two was a natural fit for me!


What inspires you?

So many things! The creativity of others, great music, travel. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Asia over the past couple of years and I always come home inspired by a new culture. I’m currently having a love affair with India after visiting earlier this year. I also love looking through Flickr, Etsy, or Pinterest just to see all the amazing things creative people come up with! It may not directly inspire something I make, but it always renews my enthusiasm and gives me great ideas.

What’s the best thing about where you live?

We have a great little art museum in Myrtle Beach that I love to visit. There are only spaces for two or three exhibits at a time, but it is so well curated. You can really tell there’s a lot of love that goes into running the museum! My favorite exhibit was definitely the Quilts of Gees Bend. It was incredible! We also have a minor league baseball team here that I love to go watch. That’s my other favorite place in Myrtle Beach! Watching baseball is what I love to do when I need to recharge.


What’s on your playlist?  Any favorite songs you listen to over and over?

Music is such a huge love for me. I love to sing and I’m always so much more motivated when I have something great playing! Neko Case, Ryan Adams, Mike Doughty, and Kay Hanley are what I’m most often listening to. I’ve also been listening to a lot of Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor lately. Hotel Song by Regina Spektor is the one I can’t get enough of lately!

    I LOVE the Large Dog or Cat Bed in Amy Butler’s Temple Tulips and Fuchsia Tree – we have two dogs and a cat – the largest is 100# Lab/Akita mix so a large bed is necessary, especially when all three decide they need to sleep together!

  2. says

    Growing up we rescued two daschund puppies from a litter of 12 when the mother was hit by a car and died! We fed them with an eye dropper and then bottle fed them until they were able to eat on their own. One of these was the runt of the litter, we named her “Tiny” – she was the sweetest pup and any animals that came to our home – from rabbits to a baby calf, she thought she needed to “Mother” them!

  3. says

    We just lost our dog Tobee to cancer earlier this year, but we are looking forward to getting another pound puppy soon! It would be such fun to put this darling new collar on her once we find the perfect puppy :)

  4. says

    My favorite pet growing up was my cat Mozart. We got him from my piano teacher and called him Mo for short. He was the best cat! :) He even responded to a clicker if he was outside and we wanted him in.

  5. says

    It’s so hard to pick just one, but I really like the Strawberry Lemonade collar! (Sprout, Cover, and Stained Glass are also really pretty!) I have a black doggy, so all those bright colors would really stand out against her sleek fur!

  6. Holly says

    I did go to the website but I really like the Adjustable Color-Stained Glass


  7. Connie says

    Hi! I really like the Lazy Daisy Collar for my dog,Annie. The dog collars are so cute! Thank you for a great giveaway! :)

  8. says

    My favorite bed..so hard to choose is Large Dog or Cat Bed in Amy Butler’s Temple Tulips and Fuchsia Tree…and I love the sugar pop braid collar and birdsnest! My yellow labby would love them all! Love the fabrics!

  9. Juliana says

    Everything is sooo cute!!! I love the Yellow and Gray Lattice collar though 😀

  10. Juliana says

    I have 3 dogs and 2 cats, so I don’t really have a favorite !! I do have to say that I have an extra special connection with my cat Teddy though… When i went to the local pound I had the intention of getting a kitten (who doesn’t want a kitten, right?!) When I walked past Teddy’s cage though, he grabbed my arm with his paw and I just knew in that instant that it was meant to be. He’s an orange tabby, and looks just like my childhood cat! I love him so much, he’s like my little baby he’s so snuggly and loves to give kisses to everyone!!! <33

  11. says

    My first dog is our current one. My mom was allergic to dogs growing up, so we never could get one as a kid. Now, we have a big, adorable golden retriever who fills our hearts every day with tons of love and happiness!

  12. says

    My favourite pet as a young child was my goldfish “superfish”. His name used to be “Gil” but then something happened. Once, when my parents when away, I was staying with my grandparents. They were transporting me and my fish back home and we had to stop at the supermarket on the way home. I left the bowl on the floor of the car in the shade and went in. When we came back out about half an hour later, Gil was not in his bowl! I found him under the floor mat. He had jumped out of his bowl (something he had never done and would never do again) and flopped under a lifted bit of rubber. I put him back into the bowl and he survived, not only that but lived in his wee bowl for about 2 years! MISS YOU SUPERFISH XOX

  13. polly says

    we have a wonderful 5 year old golden retriever named madison. when she is in ‘trouble’ she is lovingly know as
    ‘maddie the baddie’ she loves sleeping with her stuff animals!

  14. Sally Spratt says

    Love, love, love the Red Polka Dot adjustable dog collar, “Bettie” – would look great on my black lab Sarge. Also, want the large dog bed, “Amy Butler’s Temple Tulips and Fuschia Tree”.

  15. says

    Hahahaha, Kim, my dear, your friend is a moron.

    I didn’t even notice there was a giveaway and I had already left a note on your FB page, Liked and left a message on P&P, followed their Twitter, subscribed to their blog, followed Kelsey on Pinterest…then I came back to your page to finish reading.

    LOL. So that should get me what, eleventy entries? hahaha


    Oh, and this is my favorite:

    And my favorite memories as a kid were with my dog, cuddles. I mean, seriously, with a name like that? 😉

  16. Amy says

    Don’t tell the other pets (2 cats and another dog), but my favorite pet is my boxer, Mono. He’s white with a black spot on his eye. He’s a rescue dog with a heart of gold, and I’m pretty sure I love him more than I’ve ever loved anything in my life!

  17. jc says

    I used to have goldfish but my husband overfed them and they all died. No fish allowed after this disastrous episode, lol!

  18. Kendra says

    Oh my gosh! The dog collars are just too cute!! I love the Orange Martini, Sprout, and Dog Days collars the most but they are all adorable!

  19. Kendra says

    Besides the dogs I’ve owned, my favorite pet was a bunny I had when I was about six. His name was Snoopy and he lived on our 4 seasons porch. We had this huge cage for him to live in, and we let him roam around the porch during the day. There was an old arm chair rocker out there that used to be my grandfather’s and Snoopy decided to make it his home. He dug tunnels through the entire thing and hung out in there all day. My mom was NOT happy! haha!

  20. says

    My favorite pet as a child was my cat Precious. I longed for a cat for as long as I can remember and when I finally got my own little kitten I was in heaven. My favorite pet now is actually my daughter’s cat. My daughter apparently was born with the same cat loving genes and started asking for a kitten when she was only 2. We got her Cielo, a flame point himalayan, for potty training. He was 8 wks old and was brought up in the cuddling arms of a 3 year old. He is the sweetest, cuddliest cat ever.

  21. says

    I love – LOVE – the fabric in this dog bed.
    Amy Butler’s Disco Flowers and Peacock

    Rats that reminded me that I need to wash my dog’s bed – noticed a strange smell last night.

  22. says

    I actually have two favorite pets, my Golden Retriever, Mickey, who passed away three years ago and his brother, Stanley, who is laying at my feet right now. Both of them are (were) the sweetest, gentlest beings I have ever known. They are the most faithful, loving companions. My husband and I love them as much as our three children and they are so spoiled! :)

  23. says

    My favorite animal is my little old man cat who I have had for 11 years since he was a baby kitten and is now diabetic. He has to have two shots a day.

  24. says

    Your dog is so cute!!
    What a lovely shop and great giveaway. Our puppy is outgrowing her collar and needs a new one! I love the Adjustable Dog Collar- Stained Glass, such a great fabric pattern.

  25. says

    My favorite pet was a little mouse I had when I was younger. He was light grey and named Mike. I don’t have any idea where I got that name!!

  26. Wendy Hatton says

    I love the Bettie adjustable dog collar for my Jasper who is mostly white and would look wonderful in bright red.

  27. Amy says

    I love the yellow and gray one. Unfortunately, my dog passed a week ago today at 13 years old but my sister is a big time CDL–crazy dog lady–and I’d give this to her for her spoiled rotten Bella. The collars look nice and sturdy and such fun fabrics, too!
